Christmas card/kit "SENDING YOU WARM WISHES" card *w/measurement

Listening to NASCAR today ~ **GO JIMMIE & TEAM LOWE'S** ~ and putting together another Christmas card kit.     I made a card somewhat like this about two years ago and I thought I'd make some more.   I didn't have enough of the pattern paper to do all 20 the same.. and then I had only enough of the Stampin' UP! DSP to do 13, so I dug through some pattern paper I have and found some more to do the other 13.  Everything is cut/stamped and put together in a ziploc bag.  

Below is when I was working on the card sample..  the one at the top of the picture is one I made two years ago.  I had done the measurements on the paper below the card.. and realized I had a boo boo on it for the sentiment layer. I will retype everything below this pic for the finished card sample.
